You should definitely read volume 2 if you plan on continuing to read the novels.

Kawahara explained more about SAO: Progressive series in his Twitter page.

Quote:
川原礫 ‏@kunori

そして、巻末の予告ページについてちょとお知らせをば!
次の本は8月のアクセル・ワールド12ですが、
その次は『ソードアート・オンライン プログレッシブ1』というタイトルで、アインクラッド一層二層攻略編 を刊行させて頂く予定です。
Kawahara explained that the first volume of Progressive will focus on the first and second floor of Aincrad, so basically Aria and Rondo will be part of this first volume.

Quote:
川原礫 @kunori

プログレッシブ編も1とナンバリングしたからには一冊で終わりではなく、
いつか出るであろう…出るかもしれない2巻では第三層攻略編を書く予定です。
基本的にはアリシゼーション編が優先となりますので、かなり気長なペースとなってしまいますが、ともどもよ ろしくお願い致します!
And then he said that there will be second volume of Progressive which focus on the third floor of Aincrad but he stressed that writing Alicization takes precedence over writing Progressive, hence the release of Progressive volumes will be slower for a while.

That makes sense since Progressive is just a remake to reorganize the beginning chapters.

Thanks for translating his tweets.

Oh. I wonder how many volumes he plans on writing if the first two only cover the first 3 floors? And just how many floors does he intend to write about?

I suppose. The only problem I see is that the anime adaptation may suffer if he decides to work them in. Of course, he doesn't have to use all of the for the anime.

Ah, I'm sure it'll be a great read. :>

Not sure if I should put this here or in the Q & A thread but here goes....

Does Klein/Kline have any major role during and after the SAO arc and how important is he in general? I'm asking mainly out of curiosity as to whether or not there are ever going to be any other male protagonists.

While I'm on the topic, do the other members of Kirito's harem move on after seeing they have absolutely no chance against Asuna?

Spoiler pics from someone who bought Volume 10 (not me). I still haven't got it yet.

Spoiler for Cover illustration:


Spoiler for Back cover:


Spoiler for Colour illustration 1:


Spoiler for Colour illustration 2:


Spoiler for Colour illustration 3:


Spoiler for Map:


Hence, I can assume that Volume 10 contains the web version Chapter 4, followed by the new contents which then connects to the start of Chapter 5.

Great post, tomtkp. I love Asuna's emotionless face in the first colour illustration; it reminds me of her face on the cover of the Aria SS.

How many chapters was the web version of Alicization again, 20~30? And maaaan I really wanna know what goes down in this volume.

Spoiler for question, just in case:

Sachi may not have a place in the reboot.

I mean, in vol 1, Kirito and Asuna met in the latter Floors, and that's where Kirito changed her outlook.

In Aria, the meet on Floor 1, and their relationship developed from there. The main reason Kirito joined the Black Cats while keeping secrets from them was that he was lonely. Hard to imagine with Asuna in the picture from early on.

I'd be surprised if she doesn't. She's pretty important in terms of character development for Kirito.

But yeah, they're quite a few inconsistencies (such as the one above), and I'm sure that's exactly what Kawahara plans on fixing.

Spoiler for question, just in case:
8 chapters + 2 interludes + epilogue. Chapter 7 & 8 are huge chapters.

Klein and Egil are both important and continuing characters in the story. Neither obviously hold a candle to Kirito... but they are reoccurring across the various arcs. Klein actually gets cooler, in certain ways, in the ALO arcs. Egil doesn't seem to spend much time in-game (IIRC) but certainly makes various appearances in the RL scenes.

I've always assumed Kirito's harem moves on... they may not end up dating other people and they probably pine for Kirito... but I don't personally see the followup relationships as potential love interests 'chasing' our hero.

Thanks for the translations!

It's awesome news that they're going to... err... do a reboot of the franchise start. Putting the beginning portions of Vol 1> First Day > Aria > Rondo into a new volume and allowing the author a new chance to clean up some of the inconsistencies will be grand. Even if they don't take that path it'd be lovely to see. Even if they don't take that path it'll be a grand opportunity and I for one am really looking forward to it.

It's also possible the anime will skip some of that to boost book sales later.
